About the role
You will be joining a dedicated and professional victims of crime team assisting applicants access the services and support available to them through VOCAT. The team is critical to ensure that victims are not denied the opportunity to obtain assistance with counselling, medical and other expenses related to injury and loss suffered as a result of the crime committed.
This voluntary vocational work experience role provides training and exposure to key areas such as:
Exposure to other areas of law such as personal injury, migration and debt recovery will also be available.
Our clients are victims of violent crime. Applicants will need to be prepared to come alongside these people and help them navigate VOCAT as one small part of their recovery.
You will need compassion, resilience and excellent administrative and communication skills.
Given the life cycle of VOCAT matters, this opportunity would suit a PLT student seeking a 75 day placement.
YourLawyer is a young, fast-paced, purpose-driven law firm.
Central to the practice is a team of dedicated VOCAT lawyers. YourLawyer is known for being one of the larger providers of victims of crime legal assistance in Victoria, supporting hundreds of applicants every year.
YourLawyer is expanding its range of services and legal advice with a new migration department and a growing personal injury department.
